This essay emphasizes some true conceivable links existing between three historical phenomena. At first, the remarkable german influence on Chile’s institutions and public life since the xix century. Secondly, the concrete phenomena of local Nazism in the 30’s and 40’s decades of the xx century. On third place, the annihilation practices of the dictatorial apparatus, committed between 1973 and 1988. Particularly, the essay asks about the basis upon which these three events are interlocked, having as a tragic culmination the crimes on “Colonia Dignidad” (“Dignity” settlement) during the dictatorship period. On this german enclave in south Chile aberrant practices took place in previous periods. In the 70’s and 80’s decades, this place openly served as an annihilation center for political adversaries of the military regime.
